Todd Looby's Lefty may be the last film to shoot at the South Side Irish Parade.

The independent drama, the iO-trained Looby's second after his semi-autobiographical construction manager comedy The Site, follows the reunion of two childhood buddies returning to their old Beverly haunts - one an artist facing cancer (co-writer Thomas Madden), the other an Iraq War vet home between tours (Billy Phelan). Lefty has its local premiere tonight at the Gene Siskel Film Center.

Wiinner of the best feature award at last week's Iowa Independent Film Festival, Lefty features performances and recordings by The Blacks, Healthy White Baby, and Brighton, MA.

Lefty screens July 24, 28 and 30 at 8:15 PM at the Film Center, 164 N. State. Looby and cast and crew will attend. $9.
